Article Excerpt:

byChris Feil

The first sign ofTrial By Fire's problems is that its title is a pun,and I welcome any and all puns.It's perhaps not the most sensitive way to approach a film that begins with a house fire that takes the lives of multiple children.Maybe don't do that.

But then again,sensitivity isn't the film's strong suit.As directed by Edward Zwick (yes that Edward Zwick,primarily known for epics your dad might love likeGloryandThe Last Samurai),the film is a not-quite-thoughtful look at a true story of Death Row Texas.Jack O'Connell stars as Cameron Todd Willingham,a man convicted of a home arson that took the lives of his three children despite his claims of innocence.His case is doomed by prejudice and a corrupt system until he meets the correspondence of Laura Dern's good samaritan Elizabeth Gilbert.
